Activity description: The rural women's information network was originally developed by a group of women representative of a wide range of organisations throughout the south of the South Island of NZ. This loosely connected group had the common purpose to improve communication, provide opportunities, both social and economic, and ensure that people were aware of issues that any of us feel are important. The site is based on contributions from diverse people with an interest in rural issues. After several months of informal and infrequent meetings it was decided that the cheapest, quickest and most exciting type of communication would be to use the Internet. Some of the limitations of access to the Internet were overcome by placing modems in four resource centres: Middlemarch, Fairlie, Nightcaps, and Waimate.
